RAF Aptitude Test - Waiver sent off?

    So I applied for the role General Technician Mechanical a few months ago and have undertaken both AST 1 and AST 2.

    Both times I've taken the test I have scored way over what was asked on the specific requirements, but my overall score wasn't enough. After the second time I was unsuccessful, the Corporal decided to send off a waiver and a letter of recommendation, which included my work history (Mechanical fitter, so goes with my trade I'm applying for)

    I just wanted to know the likelihood of them coming back with a yes and usually how long it takes for them to contact you with the answer?

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    In the same position as you mate, good luck!
